much of the music we release is the perfect accompaniment to a good night's sleep... this track, however, is a soundtrack to a sleepless night. it's driven by a mildly dissonant theme (not unlike the alien riffs synonymous with AFX's Ambient II) that changes colors like a chameleon. be forewarned that there are a few moments that might be considered jarring, which may be a first among tracks in our collection.

This new electroacoustic longform piece by Andrew Latham's Ghostheory project takes Webbed Hand's "Rain" concept in a darker, more industial direction. A shifting palette of drones, clangs, inscrutable noises, and static are all blurred together into a hypnotic journey that could be either soothing or stimulating, depending on your volume settings.

Three deep ambient meditations on Claude Debussy's 'water music'. This album is the second co-operation from Doc and Lena Selyanina.
